Imam Al-Nawawi’s Riyad-us-Saliheen
Instructing the Patient’s family to be kind to him – Consoling the Patients and
showing kindness to one Facing Death Sentence
913. `Imran bin Husain (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: A woman belonging to the Juhainah tribe came to the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) after having conceived from Zina. She submitted: “O Messenger of Allah! I am liable to Hadd (punishment ordained by Allah), so execute it.” The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) called her guardian and said, “Treat her well and bring her to me after delivery.” He acted accordingly. Then the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) commanded to tie her clothes firmly around her and then stoned her to death. He (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) then offered funeral prayer for her.
